Ring-a-ding-ding! We have a winner to our “Carrie Bradshaw in Paris” contest

Posted in: Contest


Yes, Cheapos, we finally two winners to our recent “Carrie Bradshaw in Paris” contest. We asked the following question:

During the season six finale:

1) Where in Paris did Carrie Bradshaw fall?

2) What color was her umbrella?

and (for existential bonus points)…

3) What exactly did she lose during her spill?

Congratulations Arte and Christina! You both provided the correct answers to all three questions, including the existential bonus-studded “stumper.”

The answers you’ve been waiting for…

During the season six finale, one homesick Carrie (personally, I don’t think she gave Paris a fair shot!) slipped and fell in a Dior shop after closing her very wet (but still very chic) red umbrella.

And what did Carrie “lose” during the spill, at least temporarily?

Carrie momentarily misplaced her beloved “Carrie” necklace, which symbolized her sense of self (a shiny meld of self-identity, confidence, and balance).

And what do we have for our winners today? A very stylish Rihanna ‘Brella (umbrella) by Totes!

Thanks for playing everyone!
